NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Police say an unlicensed driver who attempted to make a right turn from the center lane in New Dorp, Staten Island on Wednesday sideswiped another car sending its three occupants, including two young girls, to the hospital.

Authorities say at about 9: 40 p.m., a 22-year-old woman was headed north in a Dodge Charger when she tried to make a right onto Bryant.

She crashed into a Honda Accord in the right lane hitting the Accord’s driver, a 50-year-old man, and his two young relatives, ages 8 and 10, who were seriously injured and taken to Staten Island University Hospital according to police.

The driver attempted the turn on Hylan Blvd. by Bryant Ave., right in front of the NYPD’s 122nd Precinct reports say.

Police say the driver of the Charger was taken into custody and is expected to be charged with driving with a suspended license.
